This Tuna Salad Sandwich with Tajin Seasoning is NOT what my mom packed for my lunch when I was a kid. This is a Gourmet Style Tuna Sandwich.
I remember growing up going to school with my little brown bag and for whatever reason, it was one of three different types of sandwiches: cheese with miracle whip and lettuce, baloney with mustard or a tuna fish sandwich with lettuce.
You are probably wondering what is so special about this Tuna Salad Sandwich recipe. I think it's all about the seasoning.
Sure you can make your Tuna Salad using a can and some Mayonasise but what fun is that? The Tajin Seasoning is the rock star of this recipe.
💭 What is Tajin Seasoning
Tajin Seasoning is a simple seasoning mix consisting of dried and ground red chilies, sea salt and lime juice. Depending on where you live you might not be able to find it at your local grocery store but I am sure you can find it online at Amazon if you need to.
💭 Ingredient Substitution
Depending on where you live, finding Oaxaca Cheese might prove to be a little challenging. You could substitute the Oaxaca Cheese for Queso Fresco, Cotija or American White Cheddar Cheese.
